Of Nature and Humankind, Similarities
Joe Charlebois

I was sitting in my car this week eating my lunch while facing a busy road. I was the first sunny and warm day in over a month. The wind was blowing and the clouds were moving by swiftly. As traffic passed by a small sparrow dove to close and was struck by an approaching truck.

Hidden Museum, Kris Showcase
Tom McLaughlin

Kuching, Malaysian Borneo – We had another exciting weekend! The Friends of the Sarawak Museum (the state where I live) asked for volunteers to set up our collections and tell people about them. I suggested displaying our kris assortment. (A kris is a medium sized dagger, peculiar to the Malay world.)

Joe Charlebois

I don’t recognize the country I was raised in. I miss that country. I miss the patriotic, God-fearing, common sense, self-reliant people who filled both sides of the political fence.

The Media
Patricia A. Kelly

Stop torturing me! I mean it. I can’t stand to listen, read or watch you anymore. All you’re looking for is sensation, when I’m looking for news.


Saluting Sailors on Maritime Day
Harry M. Covert

Amid magnificent rolling hills and farms throughout Frederick County there are not lots of conversations about ocean-going vessels and those who serve or have served in maritime endeavors. It is entirely appropriate to alert the public about Sunday celebrations of National Maritime Day.
